Loved it...exactly as described.

We just returned from our stay on Great Guana Cay at L'il Gecko. The description "cute, cozy, convenient cottage at an outstanding price" is spot on. L'il Gecko is comfortably furnished and well stocked. The open floor plan and high ceilings make it seem more spacious. The view from the bed in the master is wonderful. We thought the location was perfect. It's close to the settlement, but yet has a private location. Not oceanfront but still great views. So close to a great beach access and the docks on the Sea of Abaco side. On our exploration of the island we didn't see anywhere we would rather stay, especially at the great price. Our most favorite parts of the cottage though are the lovely and extremely private tropical garden, the equally private and lovely outdoor shower and the very comfortably furnished screened porch.
The owners were very helpful prior to our trip. Through email they sent very useful tips and information on the cottage and on Guana Cay. They also answered all our questions quickly and made us feel comfortable and prepared for our trip. The caretaker, Gina, met us at the dock on arrival and showed us the cottage and her husband stopped by to show us how to use the generator. We never needed it though as there was only one power outage and it was short in duration. Gina was also available to answer the couple of questions that arose during our stay. You can call her on the VHF, but we just sent a quick email that was shortly answered.
Our ten days on Guana Cay were during the off-season and we very rarely saw another soul on the beach. Some days we saw NO ONE on the beach all day. We felt like we were on our own private island. There was hardly anyone at any of the restaurants either. I imagine it may be different during the season. The beaches at Guana are definitely it's strong point over the other two cays we visited by boat, Man-o-War and Elbow Cay. Those cays are beautiful too though and worth a visit if you rent a boat. Lots of great snorkeling too. Collin at Dive Guana was very helpful. The owner, Troy was on vacation while we were there.
Go to Great Guana Cay and rent L'il Gecko. You'll be so happy you did.

27th Anniversary Vacation

  • 5 of 5
L'il Gecko was a lovely inviting home with everything needed to relax and enjoy yourself...My wife and I stayed for two weeks and it was by far the best vacation we have ever had.Guana is such a peaceful place with gin colored waters on both the Atlantic and Abaco side...The settlement was small and quiet and friendly..during our stay we swam pretty much every day did a lot of cooking right at the house and also ate out at Nippers, Grabbers and Pirates Cove.All the food was great.The prices at the Guana Grocery were higher than in the states but not as high as we had expected...We did all of our shopping right on Guana.If you are looking for a place to just get away from it all and truly find out what " Island Time" is all about just leave all of your high tech devices behind and step into L'il Gecko...It will put you into a state of complete bliss. My wife and I will be booking another stay very soon.
